- While oven is heating, chop 1/4 C onion and 1 C bell pepper and set aside.
- Cut off the tops of 4 of the bell peppers (the 5th pepper is diced), core and seed. Discard top, core and seeds. In a baking dish, bake peppers for 10-15 minutes, or until soft.
- While peppers are baking, heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add diced onion, peppers and garlic and cook for 3 minutes. Add spinach and cook for 1 minute. Add ground meat and stir into your vegetable mixture. Once meat is browned, add tomato paste, chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper.
- Divide the meat mixture evenly into your baked bell peppers and bake for 7 minutes.
